Server approached with a little more ambition than I would’ve liked when we sat down. I didn’t even have a chance to decide what to drink! She was very complimentary of the girls & had a special mock tail made.
We weren’t offered bread. I knew what they had because I’ve been here more than once. I had to ask although the busser had taken our bread plates away.
We ordered the porterhouse for 2-3 as med rare plus. A piece or 2 maybe; the rest was walking on the plate. Server didn’t stop to check on us. I tried a couple times to get her. Obviously the floor mgr saw something. Server saw it n said need it to be a little more crispy or something. Well it came back n honestly several pieces went to waste…there was this white stuff going thru it. We took a few pieces home.
When busser came we told him we wanted to take steak spinach n potatoes home. We got the steak 🤷♀️
Server comes about dessert not even acknowledging about steak. We ordered 2 n a coffee.
When check came she said dessert on The Palm because of special occasion. Well $20 of the $24 yes.
I can tell you the server had the whole part of the floor but she was more attentive to all of them.
Yep Gave her a tip of 20% but my taste of The Palm
Boston is not to return.
I’ve come up there 12 years multiple times biz n pleasure. Sadly this put poor taste in my mouth n ruined our evening.
Delicious great quality food and service! I booked last minute and it is probably the best restaurant we’ve been at so far this trip for steak and seafood!
Lovely dinner with the family. The waitresses were very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious - steak and seafood. We sat at a window booth overlooking the seaport. Enjoyed the drawing on the wall of celebrities who visited there. A great place to go for a special meal with family.
Took over an hour from when we were seated to get our lunch.
Horrible food even worse drinks.. 60 dollar steak that came out cold and a 15 dollar drink that tasted like toilet water
Slow service when restaurant not very busy. Food was excellent
Friends from NY visiting & we all had a wonderful time at the Palm. Very pleased with the service, food, and ambiance.
Hostess did her best to find us the best spot that wasn't freezing. When the resturant filled up with Saturday night diners, the temperature evemed out. Very accommodating waitstaff, friendly end energetic. Incredible ribeye, sides and wedge salad. Highest level of service and quality of provisions.
Tim was excellent
Great staff, excellent drinks and food! So happy to see everyone eating out again.
Stephanie is one of the best around.
The service was very very slow . We were there for over 3 hours just to have dinner. When the food came finally out it was uncooked.
Terrible service, adequate food. Definitely not worth the money!
The Palm is running on reputational fumes, not exceptional fare or innovative menu options. While the location, setting, and service are still noteworthy, ownership needs to do some serious kitchen revisioning to compete with same tier competitors. It's not 1957 anymore, and while there COULD be unique ways to fuse the new and old, such efforts fell remarkably short on our visit Saturday. While the attempt at red wine infused sea salt to compliment the beef tar tar was commendable, it did nothing to mitigate the poor overall quality and antiquity of the dish..... let alone the mediocre raw oysters, aberationally creamed spinach loaded oysters casino, average steak cuts, or disappointing share-style sides. Most specifically, the 3 cheese potatoes and creamed spinach were remnants of a subpar past; when charging for $20 family sides, one should be sure to parallel the likes of Del Frisco's, or even Ruth Chris, not microwavable Boston Market. In fairness to Boston Market, their sides are actually much better. Sorry, but the Palm has a great history, and deserves a better future.
Our server Rachel was terrific. Friendly, and timed every course out perfectly for a business lunch. The bartender, (Julie?) came by and answered a wine question for my guest, with a beaming smile and one liner that had us laughing! Management checked in after our meals to make sure everything was to our liking. I got the Chicken Parm, and it gave my grandmother's secret family recipe the biggest run for it's money! Phenomenal experience. Can't wait to go back.
My guest and I each ordered small Caesar salads with shrimp and steak. We had tap water and one Coke. The lunch bill was over $65 before tip which is shocking and price gouging at its worst. Nowhere on the menu or did the server say that they were charging $6 per shrimp. I called the manager who said it is what it is. They will not get my business ever again or anyone from our firm.
Didn’t care for veal chop suggested by waiter. Wanted veal parm with the snap so was disappointed
A great place to have a nice family dinner or any other formal ocasions
Always great food and the service is exceptional.
Lobster bisque was ok , kinda watery with little flavor. Steak and the mushroom sauce was delicious.
What steakhouse does not have baked potato on the menu? The Palm
Excellent dinner and service at the Palm. It was great and enjoyable to see that things are getting back to normal with no 90 minute restriction, salt and pepper shakers on the table and people out enjoying themselves
A great place for fine dining. Our server, Kristen, was personable and knowledgeable with the menu. She added to the experience. We had a veal chop and salmon prepared perfectly. We started with a garden salad and lobster bisque which was excellent. I only have good things to say. It could be pricey……$100 per person with alcohol, but they bring it all together and it was definitely worth the price.
Server was great, food came out fast and hot. I was surprised that it was dead on Father's day night though. Expensive but worth it.
Food was great as was the service! It was a great night out.
Always an amazing time at The Palm. The food, the setting, the friends; you can't beat it.
Service was fabulous! We had a great server named Rachael.
Had a wonderful time at the restaurant! Was greeted very kindly once I step foot and had a waitress who was very nice and funny. The food and drinks were delicious as well. The view and the temperature was perfect too!
All around......Food great....service A+...!!!
No dessert/coffee menu. No ice cubes for the bourbon. These basic things would have made it a perfect evening.
We like to dine early... when you’re literally the first table ...you know that extra care has been taken in the preparation of your meal! Mackenzie was our server and bartender and we absolutely loved him! Every course was fantastic❤️❤️❤️❤️
We had the fried oysters Rockefeller appetizer and shared the 4 lb lobster and 12oz center cut filet.. our sides were the king crab risotto and creamed spinach. Everything was absolutely amazing!! We are very particular diners. If the foods good but the service sucks.. we won’t go back! Here, everything was perfect!
Our evening at the Palm was great! We went for a light meal so we were planning to sit in the bar area but the restaurant was not busy so we sat at a table by the open windows and had a very pleasant and relaxing meal. Our waiter, Sebastion, was very attentitive and personable and was happy to let us dine at a slow pace. Martinis were excellent, the jumbo shrimp appetizer was truly jumbo, and our salads (caprese and wedge) were delicious. We moved into the neighborhood about a year ago and the Palm is fast becoming our go-to dinner venue.
Another pre game dinner at Palm. Always a great take and even better food! Very quiet, superior service and exactly what we were after. We will be back soon I'm sure!
The service and the food at The Palm was incredible! We stopped in for a nice, quiet dinner before a hockey game and everything was excellent!! I would highly recommend making The Palm a stop before kicking off your evening in Boston!!
Celebrated a birthday with fabulous food and drink.
An excellent place for steak in Boston. Notable wine list. This would be a great place for date night or special occasion.
Would have liked if bread was served at the table. We all had salads so I would have thought that bread would have been a given.
Rachael was one of the best servers we ever had!!
Graduation staff was so accommodating .
